The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of the full ability range and to develop confidence and an enjoyment of Mathematics. The department recognises the importance of variety in teaching approaches and materials.

At Key Stages 3 & 4 students are set according to their ability, these groupings are reviewed regularly and movement between groups occurs in order to meet the needs of individuals. Classes have excellent student/teacher ratios.

__ICT__

We currently have multimedia projectors in all classrooms and interactive whiteboards. The department also has 30 laptops for student use. We have a subscription with My Maths.

The school’s key stage four mathematics programmes of study place a renewed emphasis on problem-solving, functionality and mathematical thinking. There is a greater emphasis in examinations on the assessment of applying mathematics and using mathematics to solve problems, and some questions are now set in contexts that students should be expected to deal with in the real world.

The 2017 Specification for the Mathematics GCSE has two tiers of study and is graded using grades 1-9:

__Foundation tier:__

Where grades 1 up to 5 may be achieved.

__Higher tier:__

Where grades 4 up to 9 are possible.- The GCSE is entirely assessed by written examination, which means that no coursework will be expected from any student.
- The GCSE is assessed through three 1 hour and 30 minute examination papers.
- The content of the GCSE Mathematics specifications has been grouped into the topic areas of Number, Algebra, Geometry, Measures, Statistics and Probability.
